Welcome to the Atlas Encyclopedia, where we archive longer-form, in-depth articles on a wide variety of coffee topics. These encyclopedia entries are the collected knowledge of our collective decades of experiences in the field, behind the bar, at the roaster, and at the cupping table. We will continue to add content over time, and would love to hear what topics you want to learn more about. Contact us with your suggestions or questions.
